Surface Preparation The surfaces to be glued should be clean and free from dust, grease and other contaminants. Wood, plaster and brick may be damp but not running wet (NOTE This will slow down the drying time). Use mechanical abrasion to clean porous surfaces if necessary before application.

Prime dusty surfaces with EVERBUILD PVA BOND diluted 1:4 with water and allow to dry. Apply using a standard sealant gun, cut tip of cartridge, apply nozzle and cut an opening to suite the required bead size. For bonding heavy items (Plasterboard/worktops/wall panels etc) apply adhesive all the way around the edge of the item (30-50mm from edge) and cover back with beads of adhesive at 300mm intervals. Alternatively, apply adhesive direct to battens and press into place. NOTE. With heavy items, always provide temporary support until the adhesive dries . For bonding lightweight items (covings, dado rails, skirting etc) apply adhesive to back of item in one or two continuous beads and press immediately into place. Where gap filling is required, mark the areas where there is a large gap and apply a thicker bead to these areas. In all cases, clean up excess adhesive immediately with a damp cloth.
